Concealed Carry Class

The Tioga County Sportsmen’s Association (TCSA) has been authorized to teach the Concealed Carry Handgun Education Class which is required before anyone in NY State can be issued a Concealed Carry Pistol Permit.

Our authorization is valid for both Tioga, and Broome Counties.

Currently it is our intention to conduct a class monthly. Minimum attendance is 6 people, the maximum is 12.   This rational takes into consideration time, effort, safety, and personal involvement for the attendees.

The fee for the two-day class is $300.00   This includes all that one needs to complete the class (firearms, ammunition, training books, and lunch).

As directed by NYS the class is required to have 16 hours of classroom, with a written exam that requires 90% to pass. Plus, two hours of hands-on live fire exercises with a qualification for proficiency. Both requirements are reasonably easy to accomplish.

Class starts at 8 AM till 5:30 PM both days with a half (½) hour lunch break.

The April class is scheduled for the 29th & 30th , Sat & Sun.  We have available seating for this class. To get a seat, a $100.00 deposit should be sent to:


PO Box 598

Owego, NY 13827


Checks are to be made payable to TCSA, just put CC class on memo line.

Additional classes will be added as the program progresses. Check the website

for availability.
